Between the worlds of romance and dreams
X
The works of artist Suhas Roy, in his exhibition titled, Simply Suhas will be on display from 18 December.

All the elements in his works ensure that his richly romantic subjects do not touch extreme syrupy and stereotypical portrayals. Instead, their very patent beauty veers towards melancholic grace and elegance. This graceful portrayal of his subjects has much to do with his choice of materials - crayons, charcoal and brush. Art works are usually inspired by life around him, but his themes are as much influenced by the everyday world as they are rooted in fantasy. The vast and complex texture of life is seen as mystical and dark in his work.

The mystical flavour of his works arose from his interpretations of the ‘unknown’. Revealing his philosophy, the artist said ‘I want to prove that the business of art is simple’. Roy has proved that it is not necessary to fret and fume or deliver profound sermons. Success can come from delicate little strokes, small but honest commitments and simple joys. A fine blend of beauty and simplicity remain the hallmark of Suhas Roy’s work. His subjects are romanticised, inhabiting the dreamlike world between sensuality and innocence. This show will bring to the viewer, a rare combination of lasting beauty and nuanced depth-never compromising one for the other.

When: 18th December, 10 am onwards
Where: Open Palm Court Gallery, India Habitat Centre
